About the Property

Chateau / Country Home, 6 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4.5 Baths,(Sleeps 2-25)

The Barn House is a unique and beautiful home that was once truly a barn. In 2001 it was transformed to become something quite magical, and it is now a treasured country experience made available to you. Whether you are a group of two or, group of friends, business group, retreats..the Barn House provides an opportunity for an experience instead of merely an event. The beauty of country will surround you inside and out, with views that hold their own magic with each season, and the interior of the barn with it's wood, stone and stained glass, will leave you in awe as you explore all it offers.

When you rent the Barn House, it is fully furnished with all you probably will need, and if something additional is needed, we will do our best in the tradition of country hospitality, to accommodate you...and to make your stay a treasured memory.

Whether you plan to visit the many attractions in the area...the 26 mile Heritage Trail hiking an biking trail, the wineries, the Field of Dreams, the Riverboat Museum, Galena, ski at Sundown, or you plan to just enjoy the peacefulness and serenity of the country, the Barn House will meet your needs. Call me to discuss how we can help you with what you need. 563-542-0735.

It isn't possible in words or pictures to fully capture the beauty of the Barn House and the country surroundings -- you must experience it yourself. You will then know why...heaven and earth do meet at the Barn House.

Keywords: The Barn House is a full home rental, where you have the entire home to share with your family/group to make your time together an unforgettable experience.
